7:01 am
spot producing significant rainfall in the bay area. it's a cold front approaching in the area and moving out. it's this moisture plume. you heard about the cold air. it's neat, the warm air is focused to the south and the cold air is to the north and it's sinking in the bay area over the next couple of days. the radar over the past few hours we have the clouds out there and rain showers for the most part have moved out of town. maybe a few left oversprinkles out there. for the most part clouds in place and santa rosa visibility is down to one quarter of a mile. 32 degrees now. san francisco 43 and san jose 46 and liver metro 41 degrees. this morning mostly cloudy skies and 8:00 temperatures in the upper 30s and 40s. into the afternoon hours partly cloudy skies and low to mid 50s and in between systems here as you can pick out into your thursday afternoon. looks nice out there. make the most of the sunshine today. it's changing quite a bit this
7:02 am
weekend and into friday as well. increasing clouds and look what happens by friday night into saturday morning the first waves of rain move on shore. this is just the beginning of what will be a very active weather weekend here in the bay area. we'll talk more about rainfall expectations and high winds and flooding concerns. sal has an update on traffic. good morning, we are looking at a commute that is going to be busy. if you're driving although it's not as bad as i think it could be. this is a look at highway 80 westbound, a 24-minute drive between the cartinez bridge and mcarthur maze. no major problems on the way. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza you will see slow traffic as you drive on the westbound commute. it's getting better in the last few minutes. a new accident reported eastbound 92 at highway 101. that one came in. westbound traffic on the san
7:03 am
matt bridge is not bad. on the peninsula 101 is not looking bad either. 703, back to the desk. across the bay area emergency crews are bracing for a huge amount of rain this weekend. ma ren county is likely to be especially hard hit by the storm. alex savage is live this morning taking a look at what people there are doing to prepare. >> good morning, yeah, certainly one of the biggest concerns with these weekend storms is the possibility of flooding and people up here are taking it seriously. a lot of people have come here to this sandbag station right by the tennis court parking lot on sunny hill drive. people are coming to get these sandbags across this area and these will be busy spots over the next couple of days as there's a bit of a break in the wet weather and a chance for people to prepare. home owns are bracing for several inches of rain this coming weekend. there's also the possibility that local creeks could
7:04 am
overflow their banks as well. emergency workers are preparing for all sorts of problem from the flooding to downed trees and widespread power outages. pge is doubling the number of crews on hand this upcoming weekend so they can kwukly respond to out annals and hopefully get the power back on. county officials are preparing to open up an emergency command center. . it's due to the topography here in the county. we have other mountains throughout the county that literally stop and hold on to the rain clouds as they pass over and it's not until they drop all their moisture that the clouds are able to move on. >> of course all this rain is moving in with the ground already very sach waited so that means the distinct possibility of trees being uprooted. now there's a break in the wet weather, this is the time to
7:05 am
prepare along with getting the sandbags ready to protect your home from flooding. emergency crews say it's also a good idea to make sure you have flashlights all ready to go and plenty of batteries and another thing that is important is before this storm moves in or this series of storms moves in, a good idea so to make sure your cell phone is charged as well in case the power goes out. >> i was in there almost 11 or 12 years ago when they had huge flooding in the north bay and that area was devastated so it's a good reminder for the weekend. >> it certainly is. people take the warnings seriously. as you point out, they have seen it happen before and they know it can happen again. as we're hearing a whole lot of rain coming to the area this weekend. thank you. strong winds from yesterday's storm sent six boats drifting. some of the boats ran aground.
7:06 am

7:35 am
community to examine changes the community wants to see and the areas they're proud of and want to keep within the oakland police department. the oakland police officers association released a statement welcoming the new chief and goes on to say that oakland's hardworking police officers look forward to working collaboratively in serving the community. we posted more video from her news conference yesterday and the income police chief. you can find it on the front page of ktvu.com. top officials from california are in san francisco to discuss the future of law enforcement. on the agenda, officer accountability and public trust and use of force. christian captain live in the city with more on this seminar. christian? >> reporter: good morning, yeah, just got off the phone with event organizer former chief of police for san francisco tony rivera and he
